Fitness First opens first Melbourne High Performance Club on Collins Street
May 13, 2015

Following the success of its high performance clubs in the Sydney CBD, Fitness First has opened its first Victorian High Performance Centre on Collins Street in Melbourne.

Designed through applying insights into the way athletes train and including innovations like the MoveLab where cameras and analysis software record an exerciser’s movements, functions and strength to provide an assessment and customised program, the High Performance Centre on Collins Street marks another milestone in the redevelopment of Fitness First clubs in developing a new generation of clubs with a focus on function and fun.

In introducing the new club, a Fitness First statement explains “we believe anyone can train like an athlete to reach their very best, either to meet their own personal fitness goals or to get an edge in life.

“At the Fitness First High Performance Club we’ll give you this edge.

“Based on exercise science, the club has the power to make you fitter, stronger, faster and leaner.

“Our Performance Coaches will work with you to unlock the benefits of training like an athlete through results focused, trackable, progress driven stages.”

The club offers a range of features including: free weights; ground base Hammer Strength training; Human Sport cable machines; Woodway performance treadmills; Cardio Conditioning; a 20 metre athletic track; high performance strength cages and training equipment; Olympic lifting platforms; group exercise and recovery studios and the MoveLab.

High Performance at Fitness First includes:

• The specially designed MoveLab 
• A team of experts on hand to coach, motivate, support and analyse members’ training so theycan continue to progress and achieve your goals
